TZBZU Prevails: Recently we were able to obtain a very substantial victory on behalf of an assisted living facility in an administrative hearing for the Agency for Health Care Administration. The AHCA cited the facility for numerous, serious violations after a resident wandered from the facility during the night. The hearing officer found that the facility's staff was properly trained, acted properly in monitoring the resident, acted properly in searching for the resident and was not at fault for her disappearance. The matter will now move on for the issuance of a final order by the AHCA, which is bound by the hearing officer's findings of fact.

Title Services: As many of you know, TZBZU offers title, escrow and closing services for commercial real estate transactions. So that we are able to provide our clients with all of their title insurance needs, we participated in creating Pinellas Title Services, Inc. Pinellas Title, located near the corner of U.S. 19 and Enterprise Road, offers a full range of title insurance, escrow, real estate closing and loan services for both residential and commercial transactions. If Pinellas Title can be of service to you in any of these areas, please give us a call.
